5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ERAU is a great school where everybody is willing to help everyone else, the professors actually teach every class and are easily accessible to everyone looking for help and the courses are difficult but give an in-depth understanding of all of the information covered in the classes. The school has classes for pilots, engineers, business students, etc... and each of the classes are taught by someone who actually cares about the subject and has been in their industry for many years before becoming a professor.

Overall Experience: Many companies will hire students before graduation even happens because once graduation happens the students' options on where to work are huge. Companies are willing to pay a significant amount to graduates for them to work for the respective company because the students here don't just learn the information, we understand it and how to apply it to may different scenarios that may come up in the future. The school holds a career fair once a semester and is attended by companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Ball Aerospace, Ruger, Delta, and many many more. Each of these companies sends multiple representatives to make sure that they can try to recruit as many of the students as possible due to the learning environment. I have not heard of many cases where graduates have a difficult time getting well paying jobs straight out of school.

Health & Safety: I know quite a large portion of the students on campus and I have heard of a total of 0 sexual assaults and just a handful of minor safety concerns that are always dealt with very swiftly by the campus security officers. The officers are extremely nice people and are always willing to help people. The Wellness Center's councilors are extremely nice people and their backgrounds are very different. each of them have a different style of helping people through different difficulties that they may have in their life. Two of the councilors are even trained in different techniques to help people through PTSD with a third being trained in the summer of 2016. Everyone on campus might not agree with everything but if anything happens to one of us the entire campus comes together to help that person get back up on their feet and back to normal.

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is much different than what I had expected. There are no standard dorms like the ones shown in older movies and TV shows. Each student has a roommate and live in an apartment like area with a kitchenette, a small living space and an average sized room and bathroom. The number of pairs in each living area depends on the housing complex. The Village has only two pairs per living area while the Mingus Mountain complex has three. All of the RAs are nice people selected not because of their ability to enforce the rules, although all of them will, but because of their willingness to help their residence with everything from emotional support to academics to the occasional ride to a local store. The housing is great and I would highly recommend living on campus.

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is a bit different than many expected. There aren't that many fraternities or sororities due to the small number of students and the differences between the different ones are huge. the fraternities go from more of an academic based group with major focus on helping the community as much as possible to hardcore partiers that still help the community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: ERAU has great facilities or anyone willing to go to them (or has the time to). They are new facilities just done in 2015. The sports on campus are not really that important to the students due to the major focus on academics and other types of clubs but the events are still regularly attended by a large portion of the students that enjoy the sport themselves.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ERAU is such a great school, but it isn't for everybody. All academics are extremely difficult and focused on the specified topic giving an in-depth understanding of the information rather than just relying on memorization. I love the school and will most likely return farther down the road to earn my master's or even a PhD.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I do not remember anything about this subject.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Don't really know anyone there but my roommates.

3 College Student

Athletics: I do not got to the spots things.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm staying with Embry Riddle not because of the price but, for the degree.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ive had some great experiences with the professors on campus. I have had a few that were kind of strict and mean. They weren't able to clearly present what they were trying to say in class so i had to do a lot of my own studying and self-teaching.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The possibilities that my degree offered me is endless. As well as internship availability because our school constantly lets us know when an internship is available with our each individual majors.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our school is basically prepared for every scenario but when it comes to sexual assault, rape, and violent crimes we rarely see these.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The on campus living is okay. It is not worth how much they charge for on campus living.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I can't personally vouch for the Greek life on campus but i do know some great people who are involved in it. They are al extremely nice and don't treat you any different than they would their "brothers" or "sisters"

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I wrestle at this university and it was a great experience for my first year. The gym is open 24/7 to us as well as the wrestling room. We do get a little more respect for being athletes at this university but everyone is basically all equal and can do anything we do.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The environment of this school is very relaxed and makes you feel welcome. Everybody is very social and is willing to help you out in your classes. I had a great first year experience at this University.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security does sweeps of the dorms at night hourly. Crime hardly happens and when it does it's handled quickly without any issues.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Small class sizes up to 40 (max), teachers that have worked in industry, and a variety of courses if you're interested in aviation and aeronautics.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not very many people join Greek, but it isn't very expensive to join and may are school oriented.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: No matter what time it is, I always feel safe walking around campus. Since it isn't in the middle of town , the only people on campus are students or staff.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although some of the professors are extremely difficult, most of the professors are very nice and helpful, doing anything to help the students. For some of the courses there is a professor you want and don't want.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career expo allows the students beginning freshman year to meet people in industry in order to network and apply for internship opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The first year the students are in the oldest dorms, which are the closet to the classes which are nice. The rooms for upperclassman are further but nicer, except for the suites which are not as good as the apartment style. Since this is a difficult school, the social atmosphere is not huge due to studying.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, an institution founded exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' historic 1903 lift-off at Kitty Hawk, N.C., is where students and academics take flight. With a focus on aviation, aerospace, and engineering, Embry-Riddle offers more than 40 degree programs, in addition to master's and doctoral paths. The academics are what most students rave about, as the courses are challenging and rewarding, although engineering majors are known for especially getting the brunt of the workload. But even though professors pack their syllabi with a lot of assignments and projects, they truly care about their students, and students are thankful for this attention, especially with how high the tuition is (you get what you pay for!). The instructors are so attentive because it’s a small school, but sometimes this smallness can be a drawback, especially when it comes to the athletic programs. Not many students participate in varsity athletics, and there is scarce school spirit to support these teams, so if you're hoping to see flying banners in addition to planes, you're more likely to see the latter. Good news for the ladies' spirits, though: Guys are plentiful on campus, making up approximately 80 percent of the population.

Located in beautiful Prescott, Ariz., Embry-Riddle experiences sunny weather nearly year-round, which may be a reason why the surrounding area is known as a retirement community with little nightlife. Many students travel to Phoenix for more exciting attractions, with the state capital being about an hour and a half from campus. But while the Prescott area consists of an older community, that means that the crime rate is relatively low, which makes students feel safe in their surroundings. Plus, everything on campus is mostly within walking distance, so there's no need to have a car. If you do have a car, though, parking is readily available. If you need to get off campus and don't have a vehicle, the best advice would be to make a friend with one. To get to the airport, the University offers free shuttles for students, and by the end of your time at Embry-Riddle, you'll probably be able to tell your pilot how to fly the plane.
